Subject: RE: Obit: Keith A of Hertford Nov. 2018
For folks like me who only knew the version of Keith on mudcat
and were mostly opposed to his BS ramblings,
he was still a daily part of my life for a number of years.
Engaging with him occupied a lot of my time and thought.
Like him or not, he was one of 'us', our community;
and a man I tried to figure out, and occasionally defend against sheer hatred from other mudcatters on my 'side'.
He showed what I believe was genuine sympathy regarding my mum's dementia.

To me he was like the contrary old bloke in the corner of the pub
who was difficult to get on with,
but you cared enough to be concerned about his well being
and made sure he got home safe after closing time...

Sadly, he didn't appear frequently enough above the BS line in neutral ground,
so we could at least discuss shared interests.
I've always been curious about his musical life outside of mudcat...
